Story from Fox News.
Adult film actress Stormy Daniels has been ordered to pay President Trump $292,000, as reimbursement for 75% of his legal fees in the fight against her defamation lawsuit against him.
“The U.S. District Court today ordered Stormy Daniels (real name Stephanie Clifford) to pay President Trump $292,052.33 to reimburse his attorneysâ€™ fees (75% of his total legal bill), plus an additional $1,000 in sanctions to punish Daniels for having filed a meritless lawsuit against the President designed to chill his free speech rights,” stated Trump’s legal counsel, Charles J. Harder.
Harder also said, “The courtâ€™s order, along with the courtâ€™s prior order dismissing Stormy Danielsâ€™ defamation case against the President, together constitute a total victory for the President, and a total defeat for Stormy Daniels in this case.”
Stormy Daniel’s lawyer Michael Avenatti responded in a tweet,
Trump and his attorney’s attempt to fool the public about the importance of the attorneys’ fees in the defamation case, which are a fraction of what they owe my client in the main NDA case, is an absolute joke. People are smarter than that.https://t.co/oo3kkjVzPU via @YouTube
